Forms and Polls can be used to engage viewers and gather their feedback when the presentation is played. Forms and Polls are added to a slide by clicking the Form/Poll icon Screen_Shot_2013-04-19_at_1.34.50_PM.png in the Element Toolbar, located on the left-hand side of the canvas, within the Presentation Editor. Changes can also be made to Library Slides and Slide Groups using the Slide Editor. Once on the slide, each form/poll is customizable. 
Forms and Polls can be answered by the viewer in the SlideRocket Player. When a viewer answers a Form/Poll the answer is displayed in Analytics. Trial, Pro, and Enterprise users can add forms and polls to a presentation.
